BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Early indications show there's no homefield advantage in Massachusetts for Democrats who might throw their hat in the presidential primary ring in 2020.

A UMass YouGov November poll asked respondents who they would vote for if the 2020 Democratic Primary were held today.

Though Sen. Elizabeth Warren is fresh off a 2-1 win in last month's senate race, she's not Bay Staters' early favorite to carry their party's banner into the 2020 battle in the survey--it's not even close.

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders top the survey, with 19 percent and 14 percent respectively. Warren is third, with 11 percent.

That puts her well above other Massachusetts politicians rumored to be contenders for the 2020 Democratic ticket. Former Gov. Deval Patrick landed only 6 percent support, with 1 percent for Congressman Seth Moulton.

Twenty-seven percent of respondents said they didn't know who they would vote for.
